Report

 

Chirnside travelled to Greenlaw on Tuesday night back on league duty after the fun and games of the Beveridge Cup at the weekend.

 

It was the home team who looked hungrier from the start with their pacy strikeforce causing the Chirnside backline a few problems. The away team were struggling to adapt their game to the concrete like playing surface.

 

The first chance of the game fell to the homesters but the Striker put his shot over the bar with just Black to beat. Turner then had a good chance which was well saved by the home Keeper. Young then had a shot as well which the Keeper did well to tip wide.

 

The opening goal came after 25 minutes when the Greenlaw Striker shot home from eight yards out. The second wasn't long in coming when Black took down the onrushing Striker and the Keeper stepped up to slot home number two. Turner could have pulled a goal back but he missed the target with a free header.

 

The second half kicked off and Chirnisde were looking to throw everything at the Greenlaw defence in the hope of pulling a goal back. However it was the home team who added to their advantage when former Chirnside player Blacklock neatly lobbed Black from 12 yards out. The away team were looking shellshocked and number four arrived for the men in blue when the Central Midfielder slid in at the back post.

 

Chirnside never gave up and Ponder pulled one back with a great strike from the edge of the box and Turner shot home from close range to give the scoreline some respectability. Chirnside had further chances but found the Greenlaw Keeper in inspired form and it was he who could've added a fifth but Black saved his penalty in the final minute.
